Team size: 4 Outcome: Successful escape!

More experience than puzzle-driven, but it's a very very well-done experience.  Lots of dropbox navigation and it threw our team off a bit how much we were expected to share with each other (as in via screenshare) while solving - this probably adds to the experience with more novice solvers, but we are used to just forging on ahead to ensure that we escape!  Lovely story overall and excellent acting.

Not quite an avatar room but much more than an actor led adventure. A great story driven game with a science theme (and theres some math!). Lots of online material delivered by dropbox and plenty for a team to work through for the 105 minutes.
If you like story driven games then this one is a must.

I really enjoyed this! The puzzles were not too difficult and made perfect sense. The best part was the narrative and the acting. If you like to interact with someone during a game, you will enjoy this.

"Isolation" is a 2 hour experience that integrated immersive theater and puzzle solving. If you are solely there for the puzzles, you might feel that the story part could feel somewhat prolonged at times. There's really no need to rush through the game as you'll miss out on the story side of this experience. However, do leave some time at the end as you'll need to make a life and death decision. Hopefully you'll be able to save Logan so he can continue to provide his service for the next show!

Unfortunately, I can't really say much about the actual game - it's meant to be a surprise, after all. But the whole "you're on a private Zoom call with friends and suddenly a stranger joins in" premise does wonder for immersion, since you get to play as yourself.
